Hello. I bought a new laptop in Saturday, but i've had some troubles with my graphic cards. I don't know if they are working correctly, because sometimes one of them is detected and sometimes doesn't.

 

Here are the specs of the computer:

What is: "CrossFire disabled" ? How can i make sure that the graphics cards are working correctly? Thank you very much.

Ok I have an Alienware with Nvidia graphics cards with SLI grahics (2 cards). I have to goto into the graphics card software to enabled and disable SLI. Reading this article is discovered Crossfire and SLI are the same thing but SLI has alot tighter restrictions.

Thank you.

 

But now i understand that i can't activate CrossFire because i don't have two graphic cards alone, but one graphic card and another integrated in the CPU.

The problem is that the Radeon R5 should be active because it's the most powerful card. But it looks that the active graphic card on my laptopt is the R4.

 

How do i activate the Radeon R5 M240?
